What are Halloween contact lenses?
Halloween contact lenses have been called many things. Colored
contacts, spooky eyes, and novelty lenses. When we are looking at Halloween contact
lenses, we are talking about a specific medically approved contact lens that
has a fun Halloween feel.
Can I wear Halloween contacts over regular contacts?
Halloween contacts are just like any other contact in that
they are not designed to be layered. Layering contacts can lead to ongoing eye
Are contact lenses safe?
Halloween lenses have the same risks as any
other contact lenses. These risks are amplified if you are not getting your
Halloween contact lenses from a reparable medical clinic. Ordering contact
lenses online will save you money, but also put your vision at risk.
Other top issues that can occur with contact lenses are:
- Blockage of oxygen supply to the eyes – since contact
lenses, some are better than others, can decrease oxygen supply to the eyes,
its important to follow best practices to avoid any issues that can occur with
limiting oxygen supply to your eyes
- Dry Eyes – this is the most common side effects
in contact lens users
- Irritation when combined with medications – some
medications can have a higher rate of issues, such as birth control
- Diminished corneal reflex – This is the reflex
in the eye that closes the eye lid in the case of danger
- Corneal Abrasion – typically this occurs with
dry eyes or extracting carelessly. This can cause a tear in the eye
- Pink Eye – again, this is greatly reduced with
proper contact lens care, but bacteria can get into the contact lens causing
pink eye or eye infections
- Ptosis – this is when eyelids can start drooping
and cannot open fully. Soft contact lenses tend to have a lower rate
- Corneal Ulcer – an infection in the eye that can
affect the cornea causing blindness if not treated
